Anti-coal group pledges to protest outside, inside BofA shareholder meeting

The same day that Bank of America released the ballot for its annual shareholder meeting, a group of protesters announced its plans to picket the meeting.

The Rainforest Action Network, a frequent demonstrator against the bank's financing of coal projects, said it will protest outside the May 8 meeting. It also pledged to have representatives inside the meeting to introduce a floor resolution to restrict coal financing.

The group rallied outside Bank of America's complex in downtown Boston earlier this month.
